|A Clerihew Contest
Written by kathleen (elder)

Each week I will be soliciting your best clerihew (one per person). We will vote to determine our favourite, and each week's winner will receive a modest prize.
Clerihews are 4-line poems consisting of 2 couplets (first two lines rhyme and the last two lines rhyme). The lines do not have to be of the same length. As an example, here is a clerihew about Jane Austen written by G.K. Chesterton:
The novels of Jane Austen
Your clerihew should be about one of the characters and descriptive of that character in that week's scheduled chapters.
The deadline for this week's submission is Saturday at noon, pemberley.com time (that's USA eastern daylight time). Send your entry to elder_respect -at- hotmail -dot- com (replacing -at- and -dot- with the appropriate symbols, of course). Put Clerihew in your subject line so that I will know that it's a GR entry.
More about Clerihews can be found in Wikipedia (see the link below).
